Redefining public art. Redefining Boston.
Now + There serves artists and the city by creating unexpected formulas for artmaking and connection.
A 9-step inside look at the sometimes wild and always rewarding work of creating public art as illustrated in Ann Lewis' new mural See Her.
An interview with Ann Lewis about her process working with the women at McGrath House and why creating this piece is important to her as an artist activist.
2017 is Now + There’s Year of the Woman, and the female artists we’re supporting challenge the status quo, motivate change in communities, and
create thoughtful discussion through stunning visuals and programming. We're thrilled to introduce Now + There's next artist, Ann Lewis!
Since December 2016, we have enthusiastically supported five female artists – most who’d proudly declare themselves feminists – with financial and technical assistance in the early stages of their concepts for complex and large-scale projects.
We are a voice in the conversation about Boston's identity. We search out artists whose vision highlights, enlivens, and challenges the way we think about ourselves and our city. Who are we as Bostonians? What do we value? And how is all that represented in our public art?
We curate and support temporary and site-specific projects for, and with, the people of Boston. And along the way we hope to help advance new definitions of public art. We're glad you're here.
